Forbidden Fruit Blueberries Affected By The Winter Freeze

Forbidden Fruit Orchard blueberries won’t be back at Earl’s until the middle of April at the earliest.  Sandy Newman, owner of Forbidden Fruit, told us that the freeze in the first week of February took out 3/4 of her blueberry crop.  During the first week of February while starting to pick an order for 400 flats the freeze hit and almost wiped them out, ending up with only 30 flats.  In February the plants started flowering again and according to Sandy “it takes about 3 months to get back to where we were”  Forbidden Fruit Orchard is located in Lompoc, CA about halfway between San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara.  We will let you know when Sandy’s delicious California blueberries are available again.
